Piña Colada Ice Cream + an Ice Cream Social!

Someone really needs to slap the coconut out of my hands.

I’m addicted.

It’s a good thing too, because I had a craving for some type of fruity and rich ice cream. Then I remembered how much I love the creamy tropical goodness of a Piña Colada; and the Piña Colada Ice Cream was born.

It’s full of crushed pineapple, shredded coconut, cream, and just a hint of rum extract {yeah, it’s kid friendly too!}.

Then, because I’m so smart, I topped it with golden toasted coconut.

It’s pure heaven in your mouth.

You’re welcome.

Not only do I have this wonderful ice cream to share with you today, but I am also participating in an Ice Cream Social!

Which means several talented bloggers have created delicious Ice Cream recipes to share today as well.

    Oh my goodness…we love piña coladas (virgin ones that is). I make them for the kids after school as a special treat. I bet they would like this even better!

    I love the idea of turning a drink into an iced treat! I would totally spike this one with real rhum (instead of extract!), would help the ice cream remain easy to scoop for weeks as a bonus!

    Shawn! This a tropical island trapped inside a bowl of ice cream. Hello, delicious! I’ve got to make this…I’m loving all your coconut obsession.

    Thanks so much for participating in our ice cream social. Love it all.

    Your pictures are looking lovely. That class you took was really effective. Or you just have natural skill. I’m not saying your pics before were crap or anything…just…nice pics. 🙂

      You’re so sweet Amie! I don’t really know what I’m doing, I just take lots and lots of pictures and hope one or two turn out good! 😉

    Shawn, you have found the way to my heart. I’ve been wanting to make a pineapple-coconut something the past few days and I think this will fit the bill just fine. And if I have to make it kid-friendly, I will. 😉

    Thanks for joining in on the fun!

    You had an ice cream social and didn’t invite me! I’ve been on a roll lately. Only wishing I had bought that new ice cream maker sooner; I could have a whole new blog devoted just to ice cream by now!

    I’m making this. I might be sneaking in a bit of rum in lieu of rum flavoring but I do have a reputation to keep! 🙂

    1. Shawn

      Everyone is invited! 🙂 Aren’t ice cream makers fun, and totally addictive? It’s like store bought ice cream just isn’t that good anymore after you make your own.

    Aw crap, now I’ve got that “If you like Pina Coladas” song stuck in my head. 😉 My hubby will adore this. I believe it’s time for another surprise date for the hubs and I. At home, bowls of this deliciousness and maybe the Hunger Games
